Description: Visiting Mastersmith Neels van den Berg's workshop on trips to South Africa is always a real treat. His forge is pretty much in the middle of nowhere -- or at least if you kept driving down the road, that is clearly where it would end. The twisting road travels through veldt populated by zebra and other wild animals. Neels is well known for his war hammers, spike hawks, and highly refined knives. Neels was honored as a Mastersmith at Blade Show in June of 2022, joining an elite rank of the world's best knifemakers. He has quickly become known worldwide for his exceptional daggers and stilettos.
This Stiletto shows his skills at their best. It was inspired by 17th century Italian and French stilettos. The triangular blade is forged to shape from 5160 carbon steel. The blade culminates into a sculpted cylindrical base. Neel's touchmark is engraved onto the blade.
The handle is antiqued bronze that has been beautifully contoured and hand textured for an elegant, heirloom appearance. The stiletto is lightweight and comfortable to hold.
This is a classy and unique piece that is sure to be a centerpiece in your collection!
